Will Definitely Return

Such a quaint, remote B&B in the valley with the beauty of the surrounding hills. Enjoy the perennial garden and lake and take a special hike to Lookout Point with a secret route that Dave (cook and innkeeper) might share. Bridgette and Dave are the most excellent innkeepers with a charming and personable sense of hospitality, not to mention that they are great cooks! They both share a wealth of information about the history, the attractions and advice as to how to get the most from your visit. It was an honor to meet them, and I sincerely hope to see them again in the coming year. We enjoyed the peak of autumn and are hungry to see the springtime there. By the way, I rate establishments very conservatively, and it takes a lot to impress me. I'm coming back!


We'll be back!

Great B&B

We recently stayed at the Inn on Mill Creek for 5 nights. There were a total of 5 of us in two rooms (in the Lake House due to one being a child). Dave & Brigette are great innkeepers! The breakfasts were extremely good, their suggestions on things to do were also very good and appreciated! We will definitely be back in the future!
